Young Epilepsy is working hard to give the voice of young people with this chronic condition a platform. We put young people with epilepsy at the centre of everything we do to create a society where they are enabled to thrive and fulfil their potential. One of the many ways in which your donations support us is to fund our educational training programme and information. We provide training to universities and online guides to schools on what epilepsy is, how to support someone with the condition and what to do following a seizure.
By joining #TeamYoungEpilepsy andraising sponsorship,youare supportingchildren and young people with epilepsy to receive the support they need in school, college and at university. No child deserves a bad education because of a lack of understanding of their chronic condition.
